Birmingham, AL to get a Gospel Music Center and Museum

By: Joseph Middleton

Those of you who know your gospel music history know that Birmingham is no slouch when it comes to gospel music. Many groups call Birmingham home. It was in Birmingham where Inez Andrews was born and where Dorothy Love Coates called home. Nearby Bessemer was also the birthplace of Professor Alex Bradford. With historic names such as those powerhouses of the Golden Era of Gospel, it's not surprise that Birmingham, AL is going to receive a Gospel Music Center and Museum. Frankly, I don't know why it wasn't done earlier!
